Subject: This is not a character.....
In response to the reviewer below who likens William F Buckley to Sasha Cohen, you are waaaay off. William F Buckley was the spokesman for american conservatism and the editor of the National Review (a conservative paper). He just happens to recognize the gross waste of resources on the war on drugs and the infringements on freedom that said war entails. True conservatism is not about controlling people's bodies and what they do with them... it's the exact opposite. Minimalizing government and its effect/expense on the people.

Subject: Buckley tunes in
The cool hip cat tries to convince some conservative interviewer dude, that drugs should be legalized. Although the stiff isn't quite buying Buckley's proposal, he starts to loosen him up in the end. Buckley goes as far as to pretend he has a cough, so he can drop some codine (in the form of a lozenge) right in the middle of the interview. What balls on this guy.

I love these guys like Sacha Cohen (Ali G) and Willam Buckley...pretending to be a character so they can get in interviews. Buckley's conservative character is great, and he never breaks a smile the whole time he is going on about legalizing drugs.

This is actually the program concerning the cost benefit and morality of legalizing drugs, not the one so titled.
